implantation of embryos or fertilized eggs into a surrogate mother.
The transfer of fertilized eggs from a donor female to one or more recipient females.
(ET) Where an egg (ovum) which has been fertilised inside a dam (its donor) is then extracted from that animal and transferred to another dam (a recipient) where it grows to full term and is born. The recipient may suckle and rear the implanted offspring. Also called OT ( ovum transfer).
Placing laboratory-fertilized eggs into the uterus.
A technique used with infertile couples in which a fertilized, developing egg is transferred from the uterus of one woman to that of another woman.
(ET) Procedure by which the embryo is placed in the uterus or into the fallopian tube after in vitro fertilisation.
A breeding method by which an embryo is flushed from a donor mare and implanted into another (recipient) mare for development and foaling. Although the embryo is matured in a host mare its genetic makeup is that of its natural parents.
the final stage of in vitro fertilization, in which embryos are transferred to the uterus for potential pregnancy.
placing a laboratory-fertilized egg into the uterus
the process of taking an embryo that has developed in vitro and placing it in the uterus for implantation and further development.
Placement of embryos into a woman's uterus through the cervix after IVF; in ZIFT, the embryos are placed in a woman's fallopian tube.
part of an assisted conception procedure when fertilised eggs are transferred into the uterus.
Transfer of an ovum to the womb after fertilization outside the body
a general term encompassing superovulation, recovery of ova from donors and transfer of embryos to the reproductive tract of recipients.
The process in any assisted conception treatment where an already fertilised egg is transferred into a woman's uterus to help her get pregnant.
an animal breeding technique in which viable and healthy embryos are artificially implanted into the uterus of recipient animals for normal gestation and delivery.
A procedure following IVF/ICSI in which the embryos are replaced back into the uterus.
Placing an embryo developed in the lab (in vitro ) into the uterine cavity via catheter.
Part of the in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure in which the embryo(s) (which were fertilized in the laboratory) are transferred into the woman's uterus through her vagina and cervix.
Procedure of replacing embryos in the uterus
Transfer of fertilized egg(s) from a donor female to one or more recipient females.
replacement of embryos following IVF via the cervix into the uterus, with the goal of achieving implantation and pregnancy.
The transfer of the embryo from a sterile plastic dish, through a fine plastic tube into the woman's uterus. The transfer usually occurs 2 days after ovum pick-up in an IVF cycle and two days after ovulation in a natural thaw cycle.
Placement of embryos through the cervix into the uterine cavity under ultrasound guidance. The final step in in-vitro fertilization cycle.
Recently fertilized eggs from donor ewe are transferred to the uterus of a recipient ewe, usually by surgically exposing the uterus of the recipient.
Transfer of one or more embryos to the uterus.
The placement of embryos into the uterus using a fine catheter.
Placement of embryos into a woman's uterus after in vitro fertilization.
Placement of an embryo into the uterus of a woman after it has been created in a laboratory. close window
A reproductive technology in which embryos from donor females are collected and transferred in fresh or frozen form to recipient females.
Removing fertilized ova (embryos) from one cow (donor dam) and placing these embryos into other cows (host cows), usually accompanied by hormone-induced superovulation of the donor dam. More calves can be obtained from cows of superior breeding value by this technique. Only proven producers should become donor dams.
Placement of embryos into a woman's uterus through the cervix in an IVF/ICSI cycle or frozen embryo transfer procedure. Embryos are loaded into a narrow plastic tube (catheter) which is placed carefully into the uterine cavity, and the embryos are then gently expelled through the end of the tubing.
Replacement of pre-embryos, following in vitro fertilization (IVF), either transcervically or via cannulation of the fallopian tubes with the goal of achieving implantation and ensuing pregnancy.
The process of depositing fertilized eggs (or embryos) inside the uterus. This often occurs 3 to 5 days following egg retrieval. A predetermined number of embryos are first placed inside a special catheter, which is then introduced inside the uterus through the cervix. The embryos are then gently injected and the catheter removed. This procedure is done in a position similar to a pelvic examination for a Pap smear. The patient will remain in that position for roughly fifteen minutes before being discharged. The number of embryos to be transferred depends mostly on the age of the woman and the quality of the embryos. The patient will make the informed decision regarding the number of embryos to be transferred after conferring with her physician.
Implantation of an embryo into the oviduct or uterus of a recipient female animal.
Introduction of an embryo into a woman's uterus
An assisted reproductive technology in which an already fertilized egg is inserted into a woman's uterus to help her get pregnant.
Placement of embryos into a woman's uterus through the cervix after IVF (see definition) or, in the case of ZIFT (see definition), into her fallopian tubes.
A procedure in which the physician passes a catheter into the woman’s uterus, discharging the embryos and fluid it holds. It is part of in vitro fertilization.
the process whereby a pre-embryo, 1 to 2 days in age, is placed into a uterus or, in the case of IVF, into the fallopian.
Placing the embryo, developed in vitro, into the uterus using a catheter threaded through the cervix.
procedure in which the embryos are loaded into a catheter, and placed into the uterus.
The replacement of one or several embryos back into the female reproductive tract; usually understood to mean transcervical embryo transfer, in which the embryos are placed directly into the uterine cavity approximately 72 hours after fertilization. See also Tubal embryo transfer.
Placing a fertilized egg back into the woman's uterus or fallopian tube.
A process through which newly fertilized eggs (embryos) are removed from one female and transferred to another for the remainder of gestation. If proper sanitation practices are followed in embryo transfer, some diseases can be controlled in introducing new breeding stock.
The transfer of embryos into the womb using a specialised catheter.
An assisted reproductive technology in which a fertilizedÂ egg is inserted into a woman's uterus in the hope that she becomes pregnant.
A process in which early embryos are removed from one female llama and placed into other female llamas for gestation and rearing. It has not been very successful in llamas.
The procedure whereby embryo(s) are transferred back into a womanâ€™s uterus either 3 or 5 days after egg retrieval. Usually, no more than two embryos are transferred.
The procedure to introduce the embryos produced from IVF into the uterine cavity so that implantation may occur.
Placing an egg fertilized outside the womb into a woman's uterus or fallopian tube.
The process of placing the selected embryo(s) into the uterus during a cycle of IVF treatment. This is usually achieved by inserting a catheter up the vagina and through the cervix. ( more...)
Embryo transfer refers to a step in the life and times of in vitro fertilization (IVF) whereby one or several embryos are placed into the uterus of the female with the intent to establish a pregnancy.
